Discussion joined by co-author Igor Golyak who conceived and directed this play
About the Play:
Where do unwanted people go?
WITNESS, the latest project from Arlekin’s Zero Gravity (zero-G) Virtual Theater Lab*, is a new documentary theater piece about Jewish immigration in the face of antisemitism. WITNESS brings actors and audiences together from around the world for a shared immersive experience set on a boat in digital space. The piece is inspired by the journey of the MS St. Louis, which left Hamburg in 1939 with over 900 Jewish people on board and headed to Cuba only to be turned away, leaving the passengers stranded with nowhere to go and no escape. WITNESS shares stories of Jewish immigrants from around the globe through an interactive virtual theater experience at the nexus of film, theater, and video games.
*Zero Gravity (zero-G) Virtual Theater Lab is a project to merge theater, cinematography, and video games to create a new form of performance in one virtual space.
